Treatments to Consider if You Have Active Acne

Posted on 16 Jun, 2022

Active acne is one of the most prominent skin conditions in the UK. Around 80% of people will experience acne at some point in their lives. Although active acne primarily affects teenagers due to a change in hormones, many adults suffer from acne too.

If you have acne you may be experiencing not only the physical symptoms, but the emotional and mental symptoms too. Acne is known to lead to emotional distress and low confidence. 

At The Laser Treatment Clinic, we aim to help alleviate your active acne and help you manage it effectively. We want to give you the skin of your dreams and restore your confidence. To do this we have a range of treatment options for you to consider. 

From laser treatment to our very own Derma White treatment, we’re sure to have a treatment that suits you best.

Laser Treatment for Active Acne

There are two kinds of laser treatment options for active acne that we offer here at The Laser Treatment Clinic. The following methods work by using lasers to remove acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin, followed by light that helps heal the breakage caused by lesions. The two laser treatments are:

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL is a form of light therapy used to treat an array of different skin conditions. One of these skin conditions includes active acne. 

It works by sending out wavelengths of light into the skin which removes the acne-causing bacteria from the surface of the skin. This is effective in reducing acne as the bacteria is the cause of inflammation and pain.

Unlike laser resurfacing treatment, IPL uses more than one wavelength of light, whereas lasers are much more focused. 

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing treatment involves using lasers to remove the damaged outer layer of the skin. This removes dead skin cells, acne-causing bacteria, and allows for new skin to grow. 

Similar to IPL therapy, this treatment also helps with the healing of damaged skin and helps the skin repair itself. This is because the heat from the lasers promotes healing. 

Derma White Treatment

Another treatment to consider if you have acne is Derma White treatment. This treatment is a non-invasive skin treatment that works in a similar way to a chemical peel. 

Derma White treatment is a herbal blend of vitamins and minerals that aims to rejuvenate and revitalise the skin. It’s a completely safe treatment that’s used to treat a variety of different skin concerns. The Derma White treatment is sure to leave your skin feeling brighter and more even. This treatment is offered exclusively at our clinic, so you won’t find it anywhere else!
